Geek content. You have been warned.
Computer PSUs (Power Supply Units) tend to collect dust and rust over time. After a few years, excessive amounts of dust may be dangerous as the dust may overheat the PSU, or become a short circuit hazard, or at the very least, dirty other parts of the PC. The PSU is also the most difficult and not to mention dangerous, part of the PC to clean.
Cleaning a 430-Watt Verudium Power Vortex PSU as an example.
Step 1 – Testing if it works.

The old Toshiba Latptop is showing it’s age (4 yrs old as my primary computer?)…but of all the laptops I’ve ever had, this one is the best. Oh well…it’s time is coming soon I know. For a while now the fan has been rattling at me, and yesterday it started going super-critical heatwise. It shutdown a couple times even with speed-step (power throttling) enabled. When it did it again today, I decided it was time to open her up fully and see if I could get at the fan.
